Everything But Expansion Thread, Posbangs Included
I can't believe that slipped my mind. Edited to the number one spot, because obviously.
the HELL out of OHIO!
Hell people in Ohio?
In Ohio, people hell?
Don't c'mon man him. The events of today reek of Borgesian cuisine. It is clearly his fault and he must go. This is the last straw!
In case it wasn't painfully obvious. /s
I got dragged by the MGoWife to the Twilight movie this weekend. It was better than all the other Twilight films she's dragged me to, only because this now means this was the last one and I'll never get dragged to one again.
On Blu-ray at home I caught Prometheus (awesome) and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (okay).
That's about all I've seen lately. It's hard to get to theaters with an MGoKid now, cuts way down on how often I can hit the theaters. Fortunately, day care is open the week between Christmas and New Years, and the wife and I are taking the week off for a movie catchup marathon.
Did she let you bring your testicles?
she's had those in a jar on the shelf for a couple years now lol. Still, for every crapfest like Twilight, I console myself with the fact that I get to rip it to shreds when I review it on my blog. Plus, the ratio of "my movies : her movies" is still drastically in my favor.
Yea, but thats because the movies that guys want to see are usually good.
but my wife is not a fan of over the top violence such as stuff by QT, so films like Twilight are what I trade against films like Django Unchained. It is a small price to pay. At least this movie had a decent fight sequence at the end of it.
Plus this showing I was at happened to have one of the stars from the film, Peter Facinelli, in attendance to sign autographs and/or take pics with fans (but I wasn't about to shell out $20 bucks for it so I passed), so it was kinda cool to be 5 feet from a celeb.
To MGoUsers in the southern suburbs of Chicago - check out the theater Hollywood Palms in Naperville sometime if you haven't yet. It's a pretty cool theater.
I also thought Skyfall lived up to the hype, Sam Mendes delivered big time. Lincoln was eh. It wasn't bad, but I definitely didn't think it deserved the hype I've been hearing. Great acting, but I don't think Spielberg did a great job with the cut they released and I thought, given the title, that they could have done more (or less, which could be more interesting) than focus on the 13th Amendment and its passage.
I saw Argo over the weekend and I recommend it. It's entertaining and well done, but perhaps a bit overmdratized. No politics so I won't discuss it more.
I thought Prometheous was as bad of a movie as I have seen in a while.
Here's an article from USA Today talking about the potential of OSU getting a share of the national title. Granted, a lot of chips have to fall their way, but it just makes me hate Ohio more now and underlines the necessity that we win Saturday that we can spoil their national title pipe dream.
I want to talk about expansion and i want to talk about IN THIS THREAD DAMMIT.
So what do you guys think about this expansion talk anyways? Seems like everybody is pretty cool with it don't you think?
I'll hang up and listen.
How many signatures do we need to have to petition our secession from the Big Ten before Delany has to address it?
Succession or Recession or Concession. Anybody notice the increasing number of trolls and bullshit now that BiSB has retired? I had Indian for lunch and it was excellent. Who'd have thought that you could get quality Indian food in Nashville.
I've been trolling this board for longer than BiSB has been a mod. And doing it successfully, I might add. I'm actually Delonte West. Fooled you, bitches.
With 14k points, I imagine you've had your share of insightful stuff to say. I was referring to the O$U and Urban Liar variety of trolls. I miss the wrath of BiSB. I wonder if they will replace him. Maybe that is LaQuon Treadwell's big announcement; he is now a mod and you'd best watch your back.
Watching Michigan-Ohio themed YouTube videos at work instead of working.
I'm also getting pretty excited about getting out of Maryland and heading home to Big Ten country for Thanksgiving... Oh wait...
who is making the trip down to Columbus this Saturday?
I hate and love Ohio week. Hate it because i get anxious, nervous, scared, but I also can't wait for Saturday (week goes by so slowly.)
Love it, well because it's what the whole year comes down to. Beat Ohio....
PS, I guess root for ND (is in Michigan's best interest- at least as far as next year goes.) Break that SEC streak. Anyone in the south (I'm in Atlanta for the week) will back me up right?
The week does go by slowly. Thankfully the Game, similar to last year, falls on Thanksgiving Weekend as I think once I get out work on Wednesday, the Game will come pretty quickly.
I cannot tell you how many times I keep going on youtube and checking to see if there are any hype videos uploaded for the game.
The SEC has won the last six national championships, I can absolutely stomach one more if it means Notre Dame doesn't win it. ROLL TIDE
Justingoblue: any chance you could retitle this the "everything but expansion posbang thread"? It's either a posbang or day-drinking on a Monday for me.
Lunch for me: deluxe grilled cheese. Grilled cheese is the greatest stuff on earth. Four-cheese (mozzarella, cheddar, parmesean, provalone) with roast beef, onions, garlic, and a couple slices of bacon because obviously. It's even better on sourdough bread (which I didn't have in the house, unfortunately). I highly recommend it.
Also, I still think it's possible for Oregon to have an ourside shot at the MNC. If they win in convincing fashion these last two weeks, I think they'll probably be ranked ahead of the Bama-UGA loser, and it's entirely possible that Florida loses to FSU. Then of course we need Purpleface to lose at USC. I'm rooting for that scenario, not because it's the most likely, but because I can't stand to root for anything else.
Took those two seconds out of my life just for you, ChopBlock. Hope you appreciate all the effort.
Very much so, thank you. Your check's in the mail.
I agree that grilled cheese is the greatest stuff on earth. I once made one for breakfast that was bacon, fried egg, and cheese on cheesy garlic texas toast (cheese side in). Your deluxe one sounds excellent, I must try.
My lunch was Taco Bell. The Cheesy Gordita Crunch was my favorite thing on the menu to begin with, but then my buddy let me know that you can get one with the inner hard taco shell replaced with a Dorito taco shell. Now that's a good lung meat treat right there.
One great thing about Ohio: Melt Bar and Grilled. The best grilled cheese sandwiches you can get anywhere.
I actually made that exact same thing on Sunday morning, except I cooked up some mild sausage and threw it on the sandwich as well. It was absolutely phenomenal.
You can also make hobo-pie style grilled cheeses, with pizza sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, and whatever other toppings you like.
I actually had my Thanksgiving Preview dinner last night, where I test out the manner in which I intend to prepare the turkey on some Meijer-purchased turkey tenderloins. I elected to go with Provencal style, and did asparagus and roasted red potatoes as a side along with a gravy of my own design. Yes, there are leftovers and it did get good reviews, so a far more grandiose version of this will be in the works basically Friday and Saturday (my wife actually works on Thursday, so Thanksgiving will actually be more akin to what it was in A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, since my kids like popcorn and toast), as this year, the family is my house and they can all sit there and eat while I watch The Game. That being said, BEAT OHIO!
I know they don't exactly go with the theme of your dinner, but you can't deny that they are awesome. I will be making pulled pork and green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. Like you, my girlfriend/fiancee/wife are all working on Thursday. The house is already clean, so I will be watching football and eating all day. I would kill for some Cottage Inn.
We actually make little pizzas with them and serve them as appetizers at Thanksgiving, but even plain, they are great. I actually make them with dinners throughout the week because my kids enjoy them immensely. The Pillsbury Grands biscuits are what I use on top of my Shepherd's Pie sometimes. They are great as well.
I've never done Sheperd's Pie with them, but it sounds awesome. I usually start Thanksgiving out by making some homemade drop biscuits with butter and homemade raspberry jam. While the ungrateful bastards are eating those, I can get to work on the other stuff.
we had crescent rolls fresh from the tube last night with our slow-cooked pot roast. It's official - we've become my grandparents.
Next, I write a check for $7 for someone's birthday.
Another reason why the timing of this is ridiculous. I should be thinking about how much I hate Urban Meyer. Instead all I can think about is how much I hate Jim Delany.
Hate them both, equally and as passionately as you can. It is the season of hating right?
and then pewp on Delaney's desk,
We should totally play Denard at running back.
Safehouse last night. What a mess that movie was.
For a Bourne genre movie, it wasn't horrible. I wish there has been more killing, though.
"Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!" - My brain.
I WANTED A BUBBLE HOCKEY TABLE WHEN I WAS A KID. I GOT A SLIDER HOCKEY GAME INSTEAD. GOOD ENOUGH, I SAID. THEN I BROKE IT. THEN THEY SAID, THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS. I WAS SAD.
"You better guard your loins, you buckeyes, because we're coming down there. We're comin down there with fire in our eyes and blood in our hearts!" -Bob Ufer
That's "gird your loins." As in, strap a sword on. Not "guard your loins because we're coming down there" because EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
I like "guard your loins" better.
To hell with notre dame
It's a simple question. If the moon was made of spare ribs... wouldya eaat it?
We talking all you can eat?
The Moon's pretty big, so I imagine the man means Ponderosa-style All You Can Eat.
I'm in then on one condition at that is that Jupiter is made of lake perch and we get to grub on that next week.
but only if we use Drake's Crispy Fry Mix on the Perch. They taste better that way.
Only if was made of hot wings and blue cheese
I once killed a man, I threw him in the Kankakee river. It's cool to talk about here right?
TOOL IS COMING TO THE PALACE!!!!!!
Better news, everything 40% off at the Polo/Nike stores on black friday at Great lakes!
Tool just announced that they'll be joining the B1G in all sports and playing their home games at the Palace.
Informing us that Delaney is going to take in a show at Auburn Hills isn't appropriate.
To see the Blue BEAT OHIO.
Over the weekend, the #16 Michigan Wrestling Wolverines took two duals from #10 Oregon State and unranked Stanford. 141 lb Camryn Jackson is starting to look like a true stud. After redshirting and wrestling with 2x NCAA Champion Kellen Russell the past year, he's taken over the 141 weight class with a bang. Including defeating the #2 ranked wrestler Mangrum from OSU this weekend. Jackson is still undeated on the season. The Wolverines have 4 freshman in the line-up, three being true freshman in Bruno, Massa, and Thomas. Jackson marks the 4th.
These guys are going to be very good over the next several years and Michigan will be adding 4 very high ranked commits to next year, including #5 Ben Whitford, #11 Brian Murphy, #2 Adam Coon, and #20 Domenic Abounader. Coon and Abounader turned down elite football scholarships for wrestling. Loving it! Go Blue!

What's up with these guys. Dutton was injured during wrestle-offs with Jackson and transferred in as a national quallifier ranked #10. But he has yet to see the mat. Is he still hurt or did Jackson win the job?
Brandon Zeerip and Ben Apland, both starters last year, were not listed on wrestle-offs and both have already redshirted. Are they not with the team any more? Hurt?
Anyone know? Thanks.
Came to talk about THE GAME. Saw expansion crap. Stayed for the posbang.
may be making Mr. Treadwell feel a bit more inclined to Go Blue. Clearly, Devin has shown he knows how to throw the ball down the field and we all know Hoke and Borges would like to not have to play Shane as a freshman.
Noticed that both Auburn and Tennessee could likely end the year with no SEC conference wins. Has to be helping us with Mr. Green. Tennessee has already pulled the plug on Dooley so they can get first dibs on Gruden, I guess. Why not go for the wild card with Tee Martin? I'm sure Lane Kiffin has him ready to go.
Any MGoBlog cigar cficionados? I just started smoking cigars and would love to hear what some favorites are among the Michigan blog community.
Not getting cancer. November is Men's Cancers awareness month. Be safe, my friends.
Saw The Sessions at the newly renovated Maple Theater over the weekend. Great movie...and appreciated the sub-2 hour running time.
Will be in Cleveland over T-Giving and planning on watching The Game at The Fox & Hound (has anyone been there for a Michigan game).
And then to Crisler "Center" on Tuesday night!
Yeah, I've watched a couple games there. It's about a 5 minute walk from my apartment. The M Alumni Club always reserves a big room in the back, so you won't be alone. I went there for the ND and Nebraska games and there was pretty good turnout for both.
Only downside was there was some guy in there with a cowbell. I mean, who uses a cowbell indoors? It was really annoying.
This is all I see when Jim Delany tries to explain the last couple days of stories about Maryland and Rutgers....
Free frozen turkey from work today, now I just need to find a cannon to use it with
Just put a whole bunch of D batteries inside of it, cook it, and you'll get a similar effect.
be right back, getting batteries
Can we expand our conference? It will give us so much extra space in our room to do activities.
Contraction! Lets remove Ohio from the NCAA.
Contraction! Lets remove Ohio from the USA.
49s not an even number soo . . .Expansion! add Mexico because that gets us closer to the central and south american markets . . . wait am I doing this right?
Look at a map. They act like a stopper in the bathtub. All the water will run out of the lakes.
So we obviously all need new hobbies now, or we support this farce. Can anyone teach me how to play banjo or knit?
That is all
whoa..whoa..whoa..Dont forget Red Dawn is coming out in a few days. Shot mostly in Michigan.
I am not looking forward to it. My guess is that it will completely ruin a classic.
That North Korea is going to overrun us? When they weren't trying to cater to markets that aren't going to see the movie anyway, you could buy the Chinese doing it, just like the Russians. But I think CRex's stories are more scary than the probability this movie could happen are.
I'm doing my best to look productive right now. Really slow Monday. On the bright side, it's basically Wednesday right now - I love short work weeks!!
is over so all of those ghastly moustaches grown over the past month disappear.
Did you see that there is some discussion of using APR rates to decide bowl eligibility?
Surprisingly important early season week for hockey. I thought the boys would at least be able to tread water defensively without Jon Merrill, but last weekend was one of the worst defensive performances that I've seen in my time here. All three goals (minus the empty netter) Friday were off just awful turnovers or defensive plays. Red always seems to find a way to turn it around, but we have to get going at some point and maybe this Garden trip can do that for us.
Crab cakes and football
donation to the city, the state, and the towing company, I am in a foul humor (humour if you are reading in Windsor). Please beat that team soundly and in a most convincing manner.
I have a good friend who is a Terp - early indications are that they are a lot like Sparty. Not a word about them, only references to Michigan's losses. I can't wait, because I am truly rotten at heart, and will never fail to inquire as to the football teams record.
